Re: Carl Palmer
Palmer brought the technical side of drumming into the rock arena or the arena rock, one or the other. I liked a lot of the prog drumming and still do but today it is seen as 'over drumming.' I think he did do fills to show off his speed. I think that was ELP detriment. When the music changed and speed was no longer seen as an asset, they couldn't make the change, even though I think musically at times they did really show that the were making music.
